Baltimore holds a job and more importantly a place to live with my brother.
I know it is still a place that does not acknowledge all of the 2nd amendment, but coming from NY it is still a huge step up. NY is a May Issue Permit to Purchase State. So, for me just being able to purchase and start becoming proficient in the use of a handgun is a large move in the right direction.
In NY I grew up with rifles and shotguns. My father taught me gun safety and marksmanship when I was very young. Both of my brothers are also quite proficient with rifles. That said handguns in our area were rare even before many of today's laws. So, now that is something I need to practice. That and teaching myself to shoot rifles/shotguns lefty (Cross Dominant).
Anyways enough of the tangent. How likely is this to go through? I understand that the odds are probably not great.
